Earthy, intense shades of green like that of MOSS Linen fill Maurice Denis’s intimate art, investing it with a quietly hypnotizing magic. Denis was a leader in the avant-garde artist circle Les Nabis alongside Edouard Vuillard, Paul Serusier, and Pierre Bonnard; together they pioneered an avant-garde approach to painting that moved away from naturalism towards the expression of deeply felt inner emotions.
Even when he adopted a neoclassical style in his later career, moody, intense color was still vital in Denis’s oeuvre, allowing him to explore the dark, shadowy recesses of his mind with an entrancing theatricality. “Art is no longer a purely visual experience,” he observed, “it is a work of our intellect triggered by nature.

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

color is very disappointing
Reviewer: anna

This fabric looks great except the color is incredibly disappointing. From my color-calibrated screen and the description, I was expecting a much more green fabric. This is not, as the description says an "earthy, intense green." It's very much a sad grey-green dusty sage color, not at all suitable for what I was planning to make. Such a bummer, I wanted to love this!

I am sorry to hear that this color was not as expected. I will email you to see if you would like to make arrangements to return it to exchange for another color that may work for your project or work out another acceptable resolution.

I love working with linen.
Reviewer: ella

My favorite part of linen actually is that because it's a natural fiber, it's wonderful for natural dyes. In the past, I've dyed linen with black beans to make periwinkle blue, and with onion skins to create marigold yellow. My other favorite things about working with linens are how breathable they are, and how stable and easy they are to sew up. Fabrics Store linens always come in lovely colors and tones- my favorites are the things I've made from Shadow Grey and Agave.

4C22 Moss
Reviewer: Maura

Gorgeous color ... just a little on the blue end of Spruce Green.

I selected a heavyweight MOSS Green linen to make a quilted, oversized Japanese-style jacket. It has a large foldover collar, slant patch pockets, and is a shorter jacket length. The pattern is called the Unfolding Jacket from Wiksten Patterns, although it's now been discontinued. I've been curious about quilting lately and decided to stitch on mild waving lines throughout in an accent thread. Someone told me the effect is kind of like flowing seaweed on the ocean floor, and as a coastal human, I kind of love that. I'm really into the lining – it is a cotton blend that I ice dyed over the summer. It was my first time ice dyeing and I love the watercolor effect and tones of pink, teals, blues as they melt together. From the linen scraps I also made a quick little envelope clutch to go alongside the jacket.
